2009 - Ruskin and Rossetti: a queer friendship
The Mikimoto Memorial Ruskin Lecture of 2009 was held on 4 November in Lancaster University's Management School (Lecture Theatre 1).
Speaker: Professor Barrie Bullen (Professor Emeritus, University of Reading)
Title: 'Ruskin and Rossetti: a queer friendship'
In this lecture, Professor Barrie Bullen details John Ruskin's often demanding patronage of Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddall. He also unpicks the strands of a complicated web woven around Rossetti's artistic development during the 1850s and 1860s, and reveals how the chronology of paintings and private lives can be closely interlinked.2009 - Ruskin and Rossetti: a queer friendship
